Villains we love to hate and hate to love

They say a book is only as good as it’s villain, and while I don’t know if that’s true all of the time, I do know this about villains: they are there to push the protagonist into action, but they are also there to play with the reader’s feelings. The really good villains always fall into two categories for me: The ones I love to hate and the ones I hate to love. So, let me share some of them with you.

Looking back at this list I realized there aren’t that many villains I hate to love and that is because I hate everyone. Let a character do one thing to annoy me and they are forever on my hate list. Sorry I don’t make the rules.
